thanks. =]

You wanting suspension for sure. They are not cheap.

Body lift would be cheapest

yah thats what i figured too, i do need a lift pretty bad. When i bought the truck the tires are too big for it, when i turn they rub and when i hit a small bump they hit the fender wells. I was hopeing for a small body lift but im not sure how i would do it with a manual. Can a person do it with some friends pretty easy or do you need a mechanic.

If you moved the thread, thanks for moving this thread to suspension lift.

You can do a bodylift with friends in a few hours.

If you have a manual transmission. They make shifter extensions.

with you having a older truck the cab bolts will be pretty rough to get out. lots of PB blaster and some heat.
